Sony CX675 is a feature-packed consumer camcorder
Packed with extras like wi-fi and manual modes, the Sony CX675 is a consumer camcorder with plenty of features.

While the Sony CX675 doesn't fall in the 4K category, the consumer camcorder still offers a good set of features.

New to the line is the Intelligent Active mode on the 5-axis stabilization system, which detects when the user is moving and helps steady the video even further. That stabilization system should come in handy for the nice 30x zoom lens as well. Behind all of that is a 1/5.8" sensor, that, while hasn't been upgraded in terms of resolution, has suited many users in the past.

The Sony CX675 captures 1080p HD video at a nice 50 fps frame rate. If the 50 Mbps bit rate is any indication, the video quality should be well-detailed for the category.

Sony has also packed in a few advanced features, including manual mode options. The low lux and backlight compensation modes should help create videos in tricky lighting as well. Time lapses and even live streaming is available too. Sony also included wi-fi, NFC and 32 GB of built-in memory.

While the Sony CX675 looks like a solid option, it's a bit pricey at $550. Around that price, consumers can find larger sensors like in the Panasonic V770, or bigger zooms like with the W580, though without the built-in memory.
